“I worked as the final quality control and cleaning coordinator for the Stella McCartney Bendon order. With the income I was able to meet my nutritional needs and pay for school fees. The order also benefited me socially as I got the opportunity to interact with other artisans from across the political divide. This was important following the annulment of the 2017 presidential election in Kenya.”

Joan Ndetei, 33 years old


“I am a single mother of three. I worked on the Stella McCartney Bendon order as a preparer doing ironing. The income from the order assisted me to pay my rent, school fees and help to provide my children with healthy food. I also used the income to buy school items that were required for the third term of school which started in September – the period of the order.”

Margaret Wamae, 38 years old

We carry out a Social Impact Report for every collection made in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative. 

Social workers are embedded in the communities in which we work, and closely monitor the implementation of our code of conduct. 

Extensive data is collected to carefully measure the impact of each order, to ensure that the work is positively impacting the lives of the artisans and that our projects are working towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
